Personalized counseling services above and beyond what is typically found in school
Sending children to college is one of the largest investments families may ever make, second only to buying a home. With more than 2,300 accredited 4-year colleges in America, selecting the right one can be a daunting decision. Few parents or school counselors have the resources needed to guide a student toward the best college choice. The unprecedented increase in college applications over the last several years has made the college admissions process more competitive and complex than ever. To successfully navigate these turbulent waters, a student must stand out and truly demonstrate why he or she is such a great match for each college under consideration.
That's where the specialty college-planning services of Judi Robinovitz Associates play a pivotal role. Judi and her staff of educational consultants offer a high level of personalized college counseling that students might not get in school.
Since 1980, thousands of families have turned to Judi, a seasoned professional who partners with students to help them choose and apply to the “best fit” colleges that will foster their academic and social growth.
Because Judi travels across the country to visit dozens of colleges every year – meeting with admission officers and students, touring campuses, and learning about the current campus culture – her personal insight provides a student with a much deeper understanding of each college than can be conveyed in a college catalog, guidebook, or website.
In a nutshell, we teach our students how to distinguish themselves from other qualified applicants, thus increasing their potential for acceptance to their top-choice colleges.
Judi performs a comprehensive assessment of a student's abilities, personality, interests, and goals in order to identify the college learning environment that best suits the student. Her thorough review of a student’s academic and extracurricular interests helps pinpoint and highlight the student's passions. Judi then recommends an action plan to help the student develop those passions with college admissions in mind.
Judi identifies a range of colleges targeted to match the particular needs of the student:
Lacking outside counsel, students often limit their choices to colleges their friends attend, well-known colleges, or schools close to home. Judi’s firsthand knowledge and professional contacts widen the choices by encouraging students to consider a greater number of appropriate colleges.
Judi’s expertise puts a student ahead of the pack with cutting-edge advice on how to make the most of high school years, and then fulfill college dreams. Her college planning includes this full range of services:
Our families continually tell us about the two things we do best:
Although most families engage our services on a comprehensive basis, college counseling is available on an hourly basis as well. This way, students can utilize our services as much or as little as needed, and target those areas that they feel are most relevant (for example, just the application essays or the college list).
